Catalog do-it yourself gets better!

In case you didn’t run home and start cataloging your personal collection of books the last time I mentioned LibraryThing, you might want to now. 

For a mere $15 you can get your very own :CueCat scanner (USB) that LibraryThing promises will work to scan your book barcodes.  Some of you may have seen :CueCats while it was a failed advertising scheme.  kosmo tells me that RadioShack couldn’t give these things out for free a few years back. 

That being said, who can resist a barcode scanner that looks like a cat and promises to work with LibraryThing to give you a great home-grown online-catalog?  Mine is on its way, watch out world!

Enjoy!
